The statistics presented include measures of labour productivity, capital productivity and multifactor productivity, as well as indicators of international competitiveness.


Gaps in GDP per capita

GDP per capita levels are typically used to compare living standards across countries. Differences in GDP per capita across countries can arise from differences in labour productivity levels and differences in labour utilisation (hours worked per capita). The latter can represent differences in unemployment, participation rates of the working age population and working hours per person employed.
